Very nice build. It seriously looks larger than 1/72.Enjoyed the build thread too, particularly the artistry applied to the detailing, paintwork and weathering.

Nice one, great paint and weathering, would be easy to mistake this for 1/48 or larger,

Really lovely detailing really brings it alive. Real soft spot for the p40, sadly mine did not turn out anywhere near this good. In fact its now a toy for my two year old son (he adores it which is nice) but everything when wrong for my build... Seeing yours look so good means I have to get another one.... Oh dam what a shame....

Congrats, Paulo!

Good mud on the wheels, also I like how tight the cordite lines are on the guns, mine always end up wide at the leading edge.

Hmm, what can I criticise? (You asked for some)

Oh yeah, why isn't it being offered up as a free gift to the 21st poster?
